Altlii)u<*!i railwny mutters have been
thu principal topic of conversation and
jirtfumcnt in Webtmintttei' for more
than a year, ye.l little lum actually boen
known of tlit* roal progress of tho work
oxcopt from liearaay, tlio majority of
our oitizena apparently being eon tent
to stay at homo and argue tho subject
■pro and con without being thoroughly
acquainted with tho real facts as thoy
ntund. Jt waa tho intention of The
GoLiLMiiiANtosond out a special com-
nJissivnor tu make a tluu-ough inapoo-
ti»u uf tlio pruposud lino somo mouths
ago, but it waa (ound incoiu'oinont to
do bo at that timo. Tho staff of The
Oolumaias haB lately been increased,
howover, and in viow of tho railway
question again coming beforo tho public fnr n final vordict, we determined
to carry out our original intention and
usceitniu the exact facta regarding-railway work on hoth nidus of the boundary. Tho trip lias just boen accomplished- and tho fact) as found, by per-
swnl inspection and observation will
now be laid before thu public in tho
worda of our commissioner. Tho fail*
uro of the Oanlield company to build
tlio Southorn Railway, und tho subsequent breaking off of negotiations with
that company, are too well known to
require explanation horo. Tho new
iigrticmout with Nelson Bennett et al,
to build the road has appeared in the
columns of Thb Columbian, and tho
genoral public are acquainted with its
conditional which will be ratified or
rejected at tho polls, on tho Uth of
October next. It might bo horo noted
that no person outsido of our otllce
knew of tho intended trip, nnd consequently nothing was "cooked" for the
occasion.
TUB 8TAHT.
Leaving Brownsville ou Tuesday,
ITt-li inat., ut 9:16 a-m., with riflo on
ahoulder and personal ull'eots stowed
nwny in his old '85 haversack, your
cqmmissloner walked over tho patch
of grass that lends tu tho Southern
Hnilway grndo and in tho spaco of a
fow minutes found himsolf ou "tho
field of action." Tho first thing that
strikes thu eyo is tho substantial manner in which the grading has beon per*
formed; tho next is the apparent care
that has been taken to ditch the low
land lying inland, tho water from
which, if allowed to stand, would cor-
t.iinly undermine the road bed and
soon undo tho work that has been accomplished at ttreat expense. Tho
syatum of ditches running acrosatheao
lands and emptying into tho river is
doing splendid work, as anyono can
seo who will spare a couplo of hours to
investigate. Both aides of the grade
arc ditched wide und deep, and out*
lota for the water are provided by tho
culverts which aro situated wherovor
necessary. The Colusiaian representative found half a dozen gangs of men
at wml: un the culverts, and the work*
manship displayed iu connection with
these would hu hard to lind fault with.
It was also notod that nt every cross-
ditch tho timber for the construction
of tho culverts was en tho ground, and
ready for tho skilled hand of the mechanic to give it shape. About two
miles out from BrownBvillo the heavy
timber ia entered, and a great relief
the shade of those trees afforded after
toiling across tho opon undor tho rays
of a broiling sun, On both sides of
the road many thousand ties are to be
aeen piled up and awaiting tho coming of tho tracklayer. About a mile
west of tho hatchery tho lino runs
through a
1'IKCB OF MUttKEU,
into tho moss on which the graders
had to cut two feet deep to find hard
pan. After leaving tho hatchory
crossing, the road bod is particularly
solid, and a tiner piece of railroad con-
Btruction is not to bo found anywhere.
The top of tho grade hag boon smoothed
by tho rains, and being hard and load
would make an excellent ruco courso
or carriage drivo wero it nut wanted
for more important purposoa. All the
wny till the long oribwurk is reached
tho country through which the lino
passes is very rich, and in n fow yeara,
when it is Bottled on it will bo a beautiful farming district. The 1.500 foot
of cribwork along tho bank ol the Fra-
uur is substantial in overy way, and
gives an impression of solidity evon lo
tho uninitiated. Your commissioner
hns scon works uf this kind iu many
other pnrti of the continent, but none
moro substantial. At thia point, from
the faco of tho bluff above the road-
bod, crude petroleum oozes fiom tho
ground in amnll streams, hut the
immense quantities of this oil lying
bnnenth and awaiting development
will only be ascertained when men
with capital and ontoruriao annexed
prospect the neighborhood thoroughly.
One of theso days someone will "striko
it rich." After passing the cribbing
tho line curves into a low murshy
piece of country, and a milo farther on
tho grading ends. But construction
is actively progressing all tho same. A
gang of about 80 men are busily grading and ditching, and tho progress they
make, even ovor this marshy ground
is, to Bay the lenBt, surprising. Tho
foreman explains that handling a pick,
shovel and wheelbarrow are not scientific accomplishments, hut the art of
keeping railwny laborers nt work is,
whioh in a nutshell explains the rapid
progress. Leaving the graders bo*
hind, your commissioner started across
a milo of muskeg, dotted with small
pine trees and Inrgo bog holes. A
pleasant break to tho monotony of
thia part uf the journey was tho proa-
onco of
TWO  I.AU0R BEAUS
on tho right of way, their right to
which, however, thoy did not stop to
dispute, but fled precipitately on Tub
Columbian man's approach. At the
end of the muskeg the grading ia again
rcaehod nnd continues without a break
to Bossi station, nt tho oastern end of
Parson's channel, Hero is located No,
1 white camp, a portion of Bradshaw
& Lemon's contract. Mr. Bradshaw
invited mo to dine with him, which invitation was accepted with gratitude
and conaiderablo alacrity. After dinner Mr. McCammon, the engineer in
charge cf construction, gave much
valuable information ns to tho maoner
in which the work was being perfurmed,
end Mr. Jaa. Loamy, who nlso happened to bo in camp, pointed out a
splendid grouse preserve, whore, ho
guaranteed, an ordinary sportsman
could bag a sackful in an hour. BobbI
Station is graded fur a sido track, and
it will be an important shipping point
fur up river fuvmora when tho line is
in operation. Tlio name of tho station
is nbtainod frum a farmer who resides
close tj the steamboat landing at- this
point. A hundred yards up the grade
Bradahuw & Lemon's men are working
on a pretty still' cut. Only whito men
aru employed. Forthe next two milos

of a few hundred feet, which tho contractors promise to havo finished bo-
fore tho ond of tho month.
station 595
ia mnrked in rod figures ou a small aud
unpretentious   poBt,   but  thia  little
fiioce of cedar marks tho station of tho
uturo city of Port Kells. Tho surroundings would not tempt even tho
greatest enthusiast t> wander off into
ruptures, but citioB havo sprung into
existence during tho last ten yenrs
that gave as littlo promise of future
greatness us Port Kells doss to-day.
Not far from the lino are situated the
undeveloped iron mines, which somo
day will yield rich returns and probably
givo rise to a largo and thriving town.
Leaving Port Kells behind, the grading is followed in a southerly direction
across the Serpentine flats to tho intersection of tho Yalo road. This portion of the grading in nil but finished,
and only a week or two at tho moBt
will bo required to put it in readiness
for tho rails. Tho owners of tho land
on the flats have cut iinmeuso ditches,
almost rivers in sizo, acroBB their property for tho purposo of drainage in
connection with the railway ditches.
Theae ditches, although only cut a
couple of months ago, are already full
of littlo fishes, which some day will
provide excellent sport for the disciples of Walton. At tho intersection
of the Yalo road a post offlco, to be
named Clayton, will bs established in
a fow weekB, nnd here uleo will be a
station of the Westmlnater Southern
Railway. Tho company evidently
looks upon this as an important station,
as the grading hns been mndo for 1,500
foet of Bidotruck. Certainly it ia a
vory likely spot for a
THIIIVINO VILLAOB,
surrounded as it is by a rich and populous farming settlement. Half a milo
south of tho Yalo road, Bradahaw &
Lemon have 35 men and 0 teams nt
work on tho heaviest cut ou the line.
A little ovor 10,000 cubic yards of
earth havo to bo takon from the ridge
to bring the grade to its proper level.
Another month will be required to
finish tho cut. From this camp to tho
Nicomekl rivor, a distance of three
milea, the work is progressing steadily,
no less than 18 sub-contractors being
busy ou the grade, and in a couple of
weeks the line will bo completo to the
rivor. At the Nicomekl construction
ends fur the present, but will be reaumed as soon as tho definite routo is
located. A party of Bennett's engineers are locating three separate routes
to tho boundary, but until it is definitely announced what inducements
thu peoplo of Blaine will offer tho company to take tho lino through thnt
town nothing will be known aa to tho
routo from tho Nicomekl southwards.
It is almost a certainty, howover, that
the old Canliold route will uot bo
eliosou,   Tho
RICH AND DBAUIirOL COUNTRY
through which your commissioner travelled nil day caused him to reflect on
the advantages Westminster would derive from a railroad passing through
this magnificent district nnd terminating in the Royal City. Tho over increasing products of these lands necessitate additional facilities for cheap
and easy marketing, aud tho city that
becomes the market for the products
of this district, its futuro is ussured.
Tho farmers aro even now complnining
thnt they cannot do justice to their
farms nnd haul their goodsto markot
on wagons, nnd what will it be fivo
years hence, when ten times the aero
ago is under crop. Thoro must bo additional means uf transportation, and

will bo found that the road ia graded

qulrei one day's vory tedious and dilli-
cult walking to verify the fads.
T1IF, SHADES OP SIGHT,
u heavy dew,and tho thermometer were
falling vory fast when tho Langley
road was reached on tho return trip
from tho Nicomekl river, consequently your wearied nnd footaore
commissioner east Iub eyes about to
find a mendly roof under whioh to
lay hia head tor a few houra' rest. After a sharp walk of 2£ miles tho farm
houso of Mr. Abraham Huck was
reached, aud, although a complete
strangtr and distpiis. \ in a tump, the
door was thrown opon and a hearty
welcome accorded tho unexpected
visitor. Without waiting to hoar any
oxcuoe, Mrs. Duck, a right jolly, bustling old lady, brimming over with good-
naturo and kiiid-hcartodneBs, sot about
preparing supper, nud in a fow minutes
yourcomtniasionor was feasting more
heartily than ho had douo for many a
month. After a good night's rest and
a five o'clock breakfast tho route-was
taken again, (Ins time for Uncle Sam's
domains. A short cut over tho mountain was pointed out, which it waa
said would savo a fow miles walking;
and this trail was taken, much to my
ultimate rogrot. Aftor plodding up
tho difficult ascent for a timo, following a bridle path, tho trail divided
into threo paths, and aa luck would
havo it your commissioner took the
wrong ono and wandered aimlessly
about till a akidway waa encountered,
which led him to the Royal City Mills
Co.'s lumber camp. While enjoying a
pannikin of cold tea after the warm
climb, the
SHRIEK of the iron horse
was heard, and a moment later a
train of immense logs rolled by the
door, drawn, I was informed, by the
flrst locomotivo brought to British
Columbia. With the assistance of the
second cook the right trail was again
discovered, and a further walk of Ave
miles brought your commissioner to
the St. Leonard's hotol, on Boundary
Bay, of which the worthy host is uur
old friend Mr. Wm. Ross. Tho sight
uf the unrivalled bay and tho suug
comforts uf the St. Leonard's, neBtling
prettily among tho trees and (shrubbery that adorn tho shore, threw out
inducements to stop aud rest that were
hard to resist. How few peoplo in
British Columbia know of this delightful spot, aud how tew of those who do
know profit by thoir knowledge 1 If
suoh a resort existed on tho Atlantic
coast it would be worth millions of
dollars to its owners. Compared with
Old Orchard Beach, Coney Ialand,
Long Branch and Capo May, it is a
paradise, and not one of these resorts
mentioned an fit to be compared with
Boundary Bay on the Canadian side.
On the American shore the beautiful
boaeh has < been disfigured and
spoiled by immense rows uf piles,
planted hy greedy speculators anxious
to acquire wealth iu the shape of mud
flat lots. When tbe tide recedes
about 2 miles of the beach is left high
und dry, and at high tide about 5 feet
of water covers the entire flats. It is
hard to imaguo a more suitable watering place, and aurely none better exists. The St. Leonard's, though large
and comfortable, has beon found too
nnmllfortheacconimodationof pleasure-
seekers and Mr. Ross finds that he
will have to double its size at an early
date.
RAILROAD MATTERS
agitate Blaine fully as much aa they
do Westminster, and perhaps more so,
for the citizens of that pushing little
town are both anxious and willing to
bonus the Bennett Co. to make it a
station on the main line. Through
tho kindness of Mr. Dorr, proprietor
of tho Blaine Journal, your commissioner was introduced to several leading citizena, who one and all expressed
their determination to mako Blaine a
railway town if money and other inducements would do it. One gentleman informed me that the road would
be bonused to the extent of 400 acres
of land within the city limits, and if
that was uot considered ample inducement a large cash bonus would be added to it. The people of Blaine, he
said, would uot hesitate at any reasonable demands in order to get the railway. When askod his opinion of the
Bennett Company, Mr. Dorr replied:
•'Mr. Bennett ia the right man, and
you may depend that tho road will be
built. He has the confidence of every
one, and he has the reputation of carrying out his projects to a successful
issue." Another Blaine mau Baid:
"The moment we heard that Bennett
was going to extend hia line north to
connect with Westminster we all
agreed thnt Blaine's ohance had come,
fur wo knew tbat he wu the right
num and that he means business."
"Then you think Bennett is sincere
and will really build the road," queried
your commissioner. "Everyone who
knows Beuuett will tell you that he
nevor undertakes anything he does
not mako a success of, and I believe
ho has agreed to build tho road to
Westminster." Such waa the concensus of public opinion in Blaino. It
was learned that three parties of Bennett's engineers were at work locating
three separate routos from the boundary to Fairhaveu. The nearest party
of engineers was reported to bo at
work about halfway between Blaine
and Ferndnle, and thither your commissioner determined to proceed in order to find if suoh was the case. The
only obstacle in tho way of carrying
out this design was the services of a
horse, for Blaine is not blessed with a
livery stable. Half a dozen or more
persons were named who might be induced to hire an animal, but at the
end of a three hours' aearoh none had
boon obtained, and your commissioner
was about to commence the journey
on foot when a good natured citizen
camo to the rescue and proffered the
services of his horse, provided he
could find a saddle and bridle. The
offer was acceptod, but saddles wore
fully as scarce as horsos, nnd your
commissioner led his fiery steed ovor a
MILE OUT OF TOWN
before tho requisite trappings were obtained. Mounted at last, the journey
in quest of further information was
commenced. Blniue is prettily ait*
tuated, but it is not seen to advantage
except from a southern view. Semiahmoo Spit and tho intervening
water makes tho foreground of the
picture perfect, all but the piles, while
the green clad hills in the rear of the
town gives a hold and striking appearance to tho background. The
ride from Blaine south would bo delightful but for the disgraceful condition of the roads, which are so bad
that travel Is greatly restricted fn consequence. .The engineers' camp was
farther away than your commissioner
supposed, and ho had ridden over two
hours beforo tho spot indicated was
reached. .Leaving tho horse on tho
roadside he entered the bush and following a short trail tho whito tents of
the party aoon camo in view. The
chief engineer of the party, Mr. Janes,
was found in camp, and he, most
courteously, gave all the information
required. He produced hia maps and
field notes and explained tho work already dono by his party, which consists of 30 men. Tho location of the
lino from the boundary to the Nooksack river, at Ferndale, had beeu completed that day, and ono party had
CROSSED TUB RIVER
and commenced work on the southern
bank. According to instructions Mr.
Janes had located alternative routes,
neither of which are close to the old
Canfield survey, but both Hues join at
Ferndale, whore the Nookisck will be
crossed. The most difficult portion of
the location had been accomplished
and Mr. Janes expected to form a
junction with the engineering party
working north from Falrhaven iu
about three weeka. Ho explained to
your commissioner that his orders for
the rapid completion of the work were
vory strict, nnd that ho was forced to
make the junction with the southern
party by a certain date, an evidence,
ne considered, that Mr. Bennett was
determined to commence contraction
at an early date.   Leaving tha hospi
table camp, your correspondent once
more reaumed the route and arrived at
Ferndale just as the aun disappeared
in all its grandeur in the west. Ferndale is not impressivo, neither is its
people. Tbe hamlet is a dirty little
place on the muddy banks of the
Nooksack river, and the only redeeming qualities it possesses lies in the
half dozen fine farms situcted near
by. Tbe inhabitants seem to lead a
delic'tously idlo life in the vciuity of
the postoflico and hotel; and pigs, too,
congregate thero in large numbers,
mingling freely with tho crowd of loafers unmolested. But Ferndale aspiroa
to ho
A RAILWAY TOWN
and its inhabitants aro willing to give
Mr. Bennett 150 aores of land and
$2,500 in cash to awaken them from
their lethargy—and the money will be
well spent. This amount may mem
small, but it is much great, r in proportion thnu Westminster proposes to
give, for it comes out of tho pockets of
less than fifty people. The Nooksack
is crossed on a wondrous contrivance in
tho shape of a ferry scow, the design
and original drawings for which were
expreBtly imported from old Ohio
nearly a quarter of a century ago. Tite
ride from Ferndnle to BeUingbam
Bay, if made at uight, is performed at
the rsl: of life and limb, mo.*e particularly so if your horse happeua to be
ahoelesB and troubled with
CORNS AND BUNIONS.
A considerable length of ibe road
passes through a dense forest, filled
with a gigantic growth of Douglas fir
and cedar. The trail, for it is not
worthy of a better name, ia in a terrible condition, covered with p< otruding
stumps and roota, interspoi-ied with
deep mire holes, in which the horse
frequently sinks to tho knees There
seems to be no effort made to improve
the trail, which iB rather surp, hung, as
the oities on Bellingham Bay derive
much of their trade from the fanners
located along its routo. It waa a matter of congratulation to your commissioner that he had added an extra $2,-
000 policy on his life before leaving
home, not that he considered that his
existence had acquired that additional
value, but simply to get evon if possible on an old grudge with the insuranco company. But the finnl settlement of the feud iB reserved tor some
future date, for though a hundred
dangers were encountered in the shape
of stumbles and falls, the jou miy was
finally accomplished in safety, nnd Sc-
home was reached just as t io ulook
struck 9.
BELLINGHAM BAY
embraces no less than four oities iu
tho same number of miles !'-outage,
viz; Whatcom, Sehome, Be lingham
nud Fairhaveu, the last nam -d being
the fairest and most promising uf them
all. Whatcom is unfortunately situated, but might becume a largo and
busy city were it not flanked by better
situated neighbors farther (.own the
bay. The mud flats, on which the
city sewage iB deposited, 'ills the
air with an all-pervading odor of mistiness when the tide is low, and at high
water the surface of the bay is bedecked with all BortB of floating gurbage
frum a cork to the last killed cat.
But eels are said to become accustomed tu skinning, and possibly tbe Whatcom people will get acclimated to thuse
nuisances and smells, which will eventually, if they are not now, be necessary to their existence. Whatcom has
made considerable progress during
the past year, but it is not being built
In that solid and substantial manner
that bespeaks confidence in its futuro. About $80,090 has been spent
in Btreet improvements during the
last six montha, and thia large sum
has kept businoss good notwithstanding the growing importance of her
rivals farther down the ba,. Cuts
and fills of small magnitude h vo ruffled the sensibilities of mau,' V'cnt-
minsterttes sinco the street improvements were commenced in the rcyal
city, but those complaints would cease
if the aggrieved patties would visit
Whatcom and inspect the revolution
accomplished there. Your commissioner had the extreme felicity ot
standing on the sidewalk and looking
down the chimney of a 2-story building. It put him in mind of "Auld
Reekie," but the inhabitants were
evidently burning up their stock of old
boots, ao he was satisfied with making
the inspection a short one. Many
buildings are situated as this one iB,
and yet there has been no clamor
against the improvements.
THE   SECOND  CITV
is Sehome, and it adjoins Whatcom in
a very brotherly fashion, it bi ing difficult to distinguish whero th i ouo bo*
gins and the other ends. Sehc mo looks
prosperous and substantial, end ovoiy
peraon  met gives the visiter the im-
Eression that thero is a prize light or a
aseball match in the direc ion ho is
taking. Thore seems to h no time
for leisure, everything is iubIi and
hurry. Large buildings are going up
in every directiou, and tbo clattor
mado by the carpenters is deafening.
Stroet improvements aro also being
oonducted on an extensive ncnle in a
moat thorough manner. Tho Sehome
House, the finest and most comfortable
hotel on the Bay, is a credit in every
way to the city. Tho proprietors, by
the way, are Canadians, and vury obliging peoplo they are. Adjoining So*
home is Bellingham city, but only a
city in name, though tho own tr of the
townsite are confident that iti proximity to Fnirhaven will one day mnke
it all that their fondest hopea could desire. While enjoying a muc-i needed
rest in tho Sehome House, your commissioner was accosted by e citizen,
who inquired if The Columbian waa
the only newspaper iu British Columbia. On being answered in the nega
tlve the intelligent citizen roplied that
"it didn't make muoh difference anyhow, for he calculated that nono other
camo to the bay." After requesting to
have his name put down as a rubscrlbor
for Tub Columbian, the citizen withdrew, remarking that "it paid once in
a whilo to take a pointer from a Britisher."

Tho throo promised county court
judges havo nt last beon appointed. Hon. 0. IA Cornwall will
prosido ovor county court businoss
at Cariboo, Mr. W. \V. Spinks ut
Yale, and Mr. W. N. Bolo nt Now
Wostminstor, Ins adopted uity,
Hithorto tho county court businoss
in those judiciary districts has beon
attended to by tho supremo court
judges, but, with the rapid increase
of population and tho growth of ull
the varied interests of tho provinco,
tho supreme and county court work
has attained proportions that demand
separate and particular attention,
and tlie appointment of thoso threo
county court judgos, to administer
that branch of the legal machinery
in their respective, hereinbefore indicated districts, will, we believe,
givo general satisfaction. An interesting feature for Westminster-
ites growing out of the appointments is the fact that Mr. Bole's
elevation leaves his seat in the local
parliament vacant. Nature, tho
scientists say, abhors a vacuum ; tho
self-same law would seem to operate in the human breast with regard
to parliamentary vacancies, and wo
may expect to seo such a rush for
Mr. Bole's M.P.-ty seat in tho house
ns will cause a tidal wave at James
Bay and blow the top out of every
thermometer in the royal city. We
trust that this distracting race may
not begin until after the exhibition,
which, with tho Southern railway
question bulking largely on our
view, is quite as much excitement
as is good for tho royal citizens for
the next fow weeks. Howover,
there is nothing to prevent a little
quiet meditation on the subject in
tho meantime, and a mental balancing of the "points" of tho various
"dark horses" who are suro to rush
into the' field tho moment tho bars
are taken down. Let it be seriously
laid to heart that Westminster wants
a good man to represent her in tho
local house. We cannot attempt to
predict at the present timo who it
shall be. .- -,.
We offer no apology for the large
amount of space which wo devote
to-duy, on tho first page of this paper, to the report of our special commissioner on tbe actual condition
and progress of railway work on the
line of the Southorn Railway between this city and Fairhaveu, as
well as interesting, notes ind- observations by the way. The instalment whieh we publish to-tiny is
only about half of the entire report,
and the remainder will appear on
Monday. Tlie aim has boen to givo
an accurate account in running narrative style of what our commissioner observed and ascertained for
himsolf by traversing tho road from
Brownsville to Fnirhaven, and bo-
vond, and procuring authentic information from nil in a position to
give it. The importanco of the
Southern Railway question to this
city, and tho fact that tho ratepayers will shortly be called on to pass
upon it again in a iimil sense, as
well as tlie absence of anything but
second-hand und hearsay information concerning the actual aihoimt
and condition of railway work on
tho line between Westminster and
the boundary, unci particularly south
of tite boundary and at Mr. Kelson
Bennett's present starting point,
Fairhaveu, were the causes that led
Tjik Columbian to determine, on
its own responsibility, and solely at
its own cost, to investigate, by
qieans of its special commissioner
goipg ov,i*i* tho ground, the alleged
progress and improvements on tho
Ileitis). Columbia section, an well as
south of the line. Our commissioner, for the occasion, Mr. F. R.
Glover, oity editor of this paper, has
spent Lho greater part of the week
in what turned out to be a more
than usually arduous undertaking j
he has done his work well, and hia
report (or the flint instalment of it)
is now kid before the public in
these columns, us a simple narrative
of fact. It will be found interesting
reading, and besides will furnish valuable information on a subject of no
ordinary interest, at this time especially, t) the peoplo of tho rnyal city
nud vicinity. We shall refrain from
furthor coui.iuoiit until tho publication of tin* ivinaiiiiiei' of the report,
and thus leave the render free to
mnko his own deductions.
An American paper has the following pretty good one; "What do
you want, my boy 1" said tbe public
official, ns ho looked up from hia
writing. His visitor was a thin,
puny lad, whose general appearance
suggested want nnd hardship. "I
want to go to sea for tho Government." "Go to sea ! Why, sonny,
you ain't old onough or big enough,
you couldn't pull ten pounds on a
rope," "1 know that," said tho boy
simply, "but I thought—" "Well,
speak out." "I thought I could
make a first-rate prize crow."
The St Paul Globs gives the following statistics rogarding the Indians of tlio United States : Tho Indian agencies nre 61 in number.
The huih'bor of houses occupied by
Indians is 21,232. The estimated
number of Indians in Alaska is 30,-
000. Tho iinmber of Indians living
on and cultivating lands is 0,012.
The total Indian population of tho
United States is 247,701. The number of Indian church members in
tho United States is 28,063, There
are 10 Indian training schools in
different parts of the Union, Tho
number of Indians in tho United
Statos who wear citizens' dross is
1621, Tho number of Indians in
tho United States who can read
English is 23,595. Tho number of
Indians iu tho United States who
can road tho Indian language is 10,-
027. 	
Following is a summui-y of the
new road law of Florida, U. S. :
Under tho new road law each county commissioner's district becomes
a road district. The county commissioners appoint the superintendent of bridges and roads in each
road district. Theso superintendent! constitute a boord, who shall
meet at tho court house on the first
Monday in August aftor their appointment in July. And after organizing, by electing ono of their
number chairman, they shall exam
ine all roads and bridges and proceed
to let out all necessary work to lho
lowest bona lido bidder for ono year.
Every malo person over twenty ono
and under fifty years of ugc, who
has lived in tho county thirty days,
can be compelled to work not less
than three days or not more than
six days, or pay in cash thirty-three
and a half cents in place of each
days' work required, Persons failing to respond, or failing to work
ten hours per day, can bo fined one
dollar; failing to pay the fino, subjects them to imprisonment and to
be let out to hard labor for not less
than /ho days or more than twenty
days. Thero aro somo good points
in tho above whieh might lie initiated in tiiis province.

URITISH COLUMBIA'S DISPLAY
Ai Torouto'H flrent lu-luxtrlii)   Fair—
wiini Eastern Fran Tlilnlts ut It.
Tlio Globe lm3 tho foloiving rc-
spccling the British Columbia court
at tho Toronto Exposition :
The British Columbia court, which is
situated in the building near tlio
western entrance to tho s-rand stand,
is a placo where visitors 'enn spend an
hour of profitable inspection of the
products oE that fast-mint,' province
British Columbians are proud uf their
oountry, and believe there is no country
like theirs. In Mr. Charles A. Caldwell, their representative at the
oxhibition, is reflected strongly the
character and ardent patriotism of bis
fellow* countrymen. Ho hus given tho
bost appearanco possiblo to thu room
whero the exhibit is to bo found, antl
eloquently dilates from morning to
night on the mineral, agricultural und
manufacturing wealth of llm province.
Ho has, indeod, much to bo proud of,
judging by tho variety of product**
which ho is in churgo of.
Almost every schuol-bDy in Ontario
hu- read of the inimcnsu timber resources of British Columbia, und do
' sired to view what he hud to coiijuro
up by imagination. At tha dour of tho
British Columbia court, howovor, is to
be seon tho timber of Iho Pucifio province as it was cut down in the forest.
Thoro stands a specimen of a apruco
tree 175 foet high to the lirst limb nud
clour of knots. There is also a snmplu
square lock, 30 x 'All fuel, of the Djuej-
lun pino, which was cut from thu truo
80 feet from tho butt. Tho ago of
this monster of the forest was 400
years, as waa proved by its 325 annual
rings. In the exhibit is another cir-
culur specimen of British Columbia
pirn* 0 ft. 8 in. in diameter, a maple
dom-with beautiful panels, a cedar
door, Douglas pine and spruce boards
48 inches in diameter and without any
blemish, panels of polished cedar,
curly maple, showing grain of the wood
and fino nowol posts. Another wonder
iu tho timber exhibit iB a Montgomery
cherry, two yeara from tho bud, and
yet measures nine feet high.
If any one doubti that British
Columbia is adapted by climate and
toil for agricultural purposes they had
bettur remove their doubts by an examination of the cereals and vegetables
in the court. The sheaves of grain
exhibited could not possibly be richer
in yield of grain, and brightness of
the straw. The sample of spring
wheat grown on high lands without
cultivation or manure is a marvel in
itself. Thero aro aho to be seen in a
bunch some twunty varieties of native
grusses, which Ionic very pretty. Coming to tho vegetables, the sine of tho
dilieront varieties in immense, and
shows how adapted tho soil of the
Pacific coast is for the raising of vegetables of all kinds. The turnips, baets,
carrots, potatoes, cabbago and corn,
uttruet-u great deal of attention. Tho
prottSc.it display, howover, is the array
of b .tiles containing samples of ull the
fruit raised in British Columbia. The
Btru'svberriea are as large as modium-
nf-jed apples , the Bartlett pears are
liko small turnips, and tho crabapples
present a healthy and bright appearance. Then there are wonderful large
aud luscious plums and apples, whieh
have a vory coaxing flavor. In tho collection are also gooseberries, rhubarb,
peas, tomatoes and currants, Tho
fruit display itself would stamp British Columbia as a good and fair country
to livo in.
But thero are still more products to
bo spokon of, and that brings up the
iMiing industry of British Columbia.
Mr. Caldwell has arranged in tho centre of tho court n pyramid of canned
salmon, which is suggestive of tho
great Ashing industry of the province..
In addition to salmon canning and
packing companies on tho Fruser River
nud at othor points-, the deep sea fisheries arc now attracting the attention
of iiaherraon in all lands. There is
now a large fleet of fishing boats pursuing a remunerative trade in the Gulf
of Georgia and tho northwest coast uf
tho provinco, Thon, again, lhe opening uf the 0. P. It, led to the opening
of an export trado iu fish to East orn
Canada and the United States. Tha
streams and large rivers of tho provinco teem with ull specimens of tho
finny tribe, bo that the fishing industry,
instead of becoming less profitable and
extensive, will yearly add to tho wealth
of British Columbia. Thore aro on
oxhibition magnificent specimens uf
fur, those receiving the inoit attention
being skins of the marten, beaver,
otter, black bear, brown bear, and
cinnamon bear. The skins are all soft
and uf vory superior quality.
The last, but not the least, products
to be mentioned are the free minerals:
There is a specimen of silvor which
brings $3,000 to tho ton ; gold quartz,
$1,600 to the ton and native copper
of a very rich character. Thun, again,
thero are magnetic iron oro and gold
specimens whioh aro to be found a short
distance from Vancouvor city. Iu the
mineral collections is a specimen of
petrified wood which was found 240
ft-ot below tho surface in a mine in
Cariboo. It resembles a petrified Japanese, Mr. Caldwell statei*iliat miu-
ing oporatlono aro very notice in Brit-
it-It Columbia at pn-sont, and predicts
thut thu coal industry itself will soon
become a largo and import mt fuctor
in (he commerce uf tho country. All
that ib wanted is capital, which iB ox-
poctod to (low iu as the resources of tho
provinco becomo known,

Victoria, Sept. 21.—Tho schooner
Maggie Mac, Captain Dodd, returned
laat night from Behring's Sea. On Juno
27th sho sighted the Rush about forty
miles from St. Paul Islnnd. Sail was
immediately made on the schooner and
awny alio went before a heavy wind. For
thrcsj hours she was chased hy the Rush,
which put on full steam. Finally tho
schooner wns overhauled, and ordered to
lidavo to. The oflicers of the Ruph
boarded tho schooner nud demanded to
see her clearance papers. These wore
produced, examined aud returned. Lieut.
Tuttle examined the Boal-skius aboard tho
sohooner, b.it finally concluded they wero
not very fresh, nnd having consulted
with his superior oflicers, told Captain
Dodd tie could go, hut to quit Behring's
Sea at once, Uucatening seizure if caught
again. The Maggie Mac got 2,107 skins
for the season's work, 1,200 being taken
Bohrlug's Sea. She spoke the Favorite on August 17th with 1,500, and all
well; Mary Ellon, July 17th, with 1,700,
and made the run homo in twenty days

he would have fought to the death rather
than allow his skins to be taken.

Wits (he rreHiiyterlnii t'liolr Concert
lu tlio Itltl Church.
An audience of over 200 people filled
the old Presbyterian church to about
its full capacity last night, whon the
choir oamo upon tho platform to sing
tho opening glee. This selection was
sung with good effect nnd gavo evidence of training. Tlie piano duot by
Mrs. Trew and Misa Fraser, although
a piece bristling with difficulties, waB
skilfully performed and gave genuine
pleasure to the audience. Miss Clark
sang in tho third number on tho programme instead of Mrs. Poingdeatre.
Misa Clark's voice and style of singing
ate vory pleasing, nud tho applause
with which sho waB rewarded, was
deserved. Mr. Vidal's song, "Good
byo sweetheart," cave that gentleman
a good chance to display the powers of
his fine voice ; his execution is mnrked
by careful training aud his oaBy mariner
makes hima really accomplished singer.
The part song for female voices,
"Sweet and Low," by Pinsuti, is perhaps n trifle out of the reach of ovon
goid average singers, but it sustained
no serious loss at tho hands of the
choir last night. A duet by Mrs.
Grant nud Miss McEwen, "List to tho
Convent Bells." accompanied on tho
pinnoforto by Mrs. Lyal was a treat.
The eoiig "Waiting," by Misa Rankin
was sung in tho full rich tone nud
pleasant manner for which this lady
is known, Tlie trio, "Dnuiu Burden,"
wna a grout success ; the blooding of
the voices nud the good lime left little
to bo desired. Miss MoNab'a read-
int', "Betsy destrpya tho paper," was
one of tlio linest efl'urts of thu even-
in;;; aa an elocutionist Miss Mo-Nab
undoubtedly occupies a good position,
but the true merit of tho performance
was tho sympathy which characterized
the rending. Very hearty applause
showed tho appreciation of the audience. Mrs, Trew fairly surpasaed
herself ou the piano, in her rendition
of tho beautiful morceau by North,
"His sorrow thy young days shaded.
Only those who havo something more
than a superficial knowledge of instrumental music and the moro nomenclature uf harmonic science, can criticize
auch performances. The audience de*
mandod an oncorc, which was gracefully accorded. "Ding dung beli" by
the ehoir was pleasant to listen to, nud
Mra, Poingdestre's song, "What will
you do lovo?" was received with hearty
applause. "Plerot" by Mra. Lyal
disclosed ono plain fact—that this
lady's voieo wub perhaps the most
culturod of any of tho Bingers. Mrs.
Lyal replied to an enthusiastic onenro
by excelling tho first song in another,
sung with groat pathos und sweetness.
"Saved by a ohild," one of Piccolo-
mini's beautiful songs, received full
justico from Mr. G. Lyal, whose well
trained voice appeared to full advantage in this effort. Refreshment/*
were served nt tho conclusion of this
aong and the audience enjoyed a few
minutes' pleasant chat before the ehoir
assembled on tho platform to give tho
final part song, "Lovoly night," one
of the most successful efforts. The
singing of "Auld Lang Syne" wound
up aa pleasant nn evening as this
season has seen. About 870 wero
taken, and tho promoters of tho entertainment are well plonsed.
TUB QUEBEC lfOllHOlt.
Quebeo, Sept. 21.—Tho work of

CORRESPONDENCE.

A Correct ton.
Editor Colombian—Sir:—In your report of the mooting of colebration 'coin*
mittcea held on Thursday evening, you
atate, "It waa reported that nothing had
beon done to advertise either Victoria or
Vancouver." This portion of your report is entirely incorrect. No suoh statement was mado at the meeting; on the
contrary, more than one gentleman present remarked that the celebration is
fully advertised in these places, but
commented on the lack of advertising on
the part of the Agricultural Society.
Tlie celebration has boon advertised in
Victoria, Vancouver, Nanaimo and Kamloops papers for nearly a month, and
posters were sent to evory point in B.C.,
as well ns to all the principal points in
tho Northwest Territory, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Washington Territory nud
Oregon, several weeks ago.
I trust you will publish this corrcctiou
iu justice to ine, as thu advertising of the
celebration was left almost entirely in
my hands.   Yours truly,
S. T. Mackintosh, Sec'y.
Editor Columbian—Dear SiV.'-Lest
it might bo thought that all tho members
of St. Andrews' Church In this city ap*
provcof the4'performance"in their ohuroh
laat night, allow mo to say that many of
them not only disapprove of it, but most
strongly condemn it, and fcol disgraced
by it, und tho applause it gots in the
newspapers. I shall not now argue tbo
question, but simply ask your permission
to enter this  public   protest on  the
{rounds that such performances in tho
xnd's houao, and for the purposo of
rnising monoy for the Lord's work, appear
to many of us to bo dishonoring to God
nud demoralizing to men. It would bo
amusing, if it were not so sad, to seo
church courts and Y, M. C. A.s holding
conventions to find out "how to bring
religion to bear on the people nnd bring
thom into our churches," nnd then st-e
them making religion a mere show busi*
ness, without any rovorence for Ood or
tho things of God, or any good influence
whatever on tho hearts or lives of their
churoh members. Thero is doubtless a
great deal of good In aU tho churches, as
there Is outside of tbem all, hut it is iu
spite of their rulers and loaders, and not
with their help.       A Presbyterian.
